If you are referring to ignition timing, diesel ignition timing is primarily controlled by the injector timing. This is also why diesel engines run such high injector pressures. The timing is very carefully controlled by the vehicles computer.

You MUST have a engine scanner to set the timing. The timing on that engine is computer controlled.

You can set the base timing by ear, But to be able to get the check engine light to go out and to set the timing were it is supose to be requires a engine scanner. The computer controlls the timing on that year engine.

There is no ignition timing to set on a diesel. If you have somehow disturbed the injector timing you'll have to take it to a dealer, as setting that requires special equipment.

There is no spark plug in a diesel so firing orders do not apply but the valve timing is usually set up to go 1-3-2-4 for balance of the engine.

That requires an engine scanner to set the timing.

It requires an ENGINE SCANNER to set the ignition timing on that year of engine.

Timing an engine requires that it have spark plugs, a diesel engine only has glow plus, no timing required. Now, if the valve to piston timing is off, you will need to replace the timing belt or chain, aligning the timing marks then. Get a repair manual like a Chilton's.

NO. A timing light will not work on that engine. You must have an obdII engine scanner to set the timing on that year.

To set the timing on a Toyota 22R engine find the distributor. The engine will have marks at which the distributor can be set. The OEM setting for a 22R engine is 5 degrees.

The timing on that engine is computer controlled. It requires an engine scanner to set the timing. No other way.

Typically diesel engines do not have timing marks. However, if there are timning marks on your Mazda B2500 diesel, they will be found below the crankshaft section of the engine.

You can not use a timing light to set the timing on that year engine. The timing is computer controlled and it requires a engine scanner to set the timing.

The only thing you can do is set the basic timing by ear good enough to get it running If you just put the distributor in the engine. The timing is not ajustable it is controled by the computor. It requires an engine scanner to set the timing, not a timing light.
